BNP mum Helen Forster led kids' race attack

Meet the female face of the BNP - the sneering single mum who led a mob of kids to throw eggs and fire an airgun at an Asian neighbour.

Graphic designer Helen Forster, a paid-up member who produces leaflets for the far right group, was yesterday spared jail after being convicted of intimidation. She was the lone adult urging the hate-filled kids - some only 10 - to shout abuse during the siege at the home of terrified Meherjan Miah, who had previously lodged a complaint to police about a racially-aggravated assault.

But after getting off with a 10 months suspended sentence, mum-of-three Forster, 32 - who has previous convictions for dishonesty and drug possession - failed to apologise. She just defiantly called on the authorities to "move on" Mrs Miah to stop further incidents. She had already shouted threats through Mrs Miah's letterbox and admitted that the eggs thrown in the retaliatory incident last August "may have come" from her fridge.

Maidstone crown court heard that although she had not been found guilty of criminal damage herself, she had "encouraged" the youngsters. They included a cautioned boy of 14 and airgun shooter Matthew Back, then 17, who also walked free as he had spent nine months on remand. He said he only "joined in" because he knew Forster, who lives on benefits in her council house in Gravesend, Kent. She, like Back, also got community service and supervision.

Outside court she said: "I've asked the council to move Mrs Miah on but nothing's happened. And yes, I'm still in the BNP."

Hope message to 'bomb city'

Our Hope not Hate bus yesterday hit Coventry - destroyed by Nazi bombers in WWII. And special issues showing BNP candidate Simon Darby getting Hitler salutes in Italy reminded locals of the peril of voting for racists. Councillors agreed: "We must keep fighting Fascism."

Once again the state protects their favourite group of scumbag fascists from the prison time you or I would rightfully get for doing the same thing.

Intimidation and previous convictions for dishonesty and drug possession? Any decent local authority would have evicted her long before now.

God, she is SO perfect for the BNP. Utter arrogance combined with racist thuggery. Why the hell should Mrs Miah move anywhere?

Quite apart from the fear that she caused to Mrs. Miah, which is bad enough, what is also disgusting about this trollop's behaviour is her use of impressionable young kids in her hate campaign. This is child abuse. I assume the party of law and order will be expelling her sooner rather than later?

I wish I was a councillor in her neck of the woods. I know which one would be seeking rehousing, and I've got some good ideas as to where I'd have put her.

You're so fucking brilliant, you can't even manage to post in the correct comments section.

As for Robert Maxwell - he was a crook and he's been dead for nearly twenty years. What's to defend?

Simon 'Eyebows' Darby claims she is not on the BNP database.

My copy of the leaked list has a person of that name in family membership, but in Leeds.

Has this person moved recently?

If so then the BNP denial is of course possibly disproved!

Hate to ruin this post but.....Robert Maxwell

"Most of his family was killed after Hungary was occupied in 1944 by its former ally, Nazi Germany but he had already escaped, arriving in Britain in 1940 as a 17-year-old refugee. He joined the British Army Pioneer Corps in 1941 and transferred to the North Staffordshire Regiment in 1943. He fought his way across Europe from the Normandy beaches, at which time he was still a sergeant, to Berlin. His intelligence and gift for languages gained him a commission in the final year of the war, and eventual promotion to captain, and in January 1945 he received the Military Cross. It has been alleged, after his death, that in the same year he shot and killed the mayor of a German town which his unit was attempting to capture"

SO? He shot and killed a fascist, a leader of a German town who resisted the British invasion. What's wrong with that? Or do you defend the Mayor of that town and his Nazi ideology. But being BNP you hate the British army and defend Nazi Germany.

The BNP are traitors to everything British.

Actually I think numbnuts was having a go because this was a Mirror sourced story.

If you were alluding to the Newsquest threads, you're wrong because they weren't Maxwell products.

Quite what the idiots point is though. Even if Maxwell was satan himself, he died twenty years ago and this story is still true.
